This research project focuses on the identification and development of profitable products of Swedish hardwood that can make the Swedish mechanical hardwood industry become more competitive.
The starting point is that the structure of the Swedish mechanical hardwood industry is characterised by a small scale and the fact that it is located primarily in southern Sweden. The development of new production systems for the products identified within the project has been judged to be essential if the results are to become industrially applicable.
The general question propounded is how the degree of refinement and the profitability in the Swedish mechanical hardwood industry can be improved through the development of products and production systems.
In the description below of this field of research, a number of ideas for products and production systems are also presented. These constitute the basis for the ongoing work of finding solutions to the problem of increasing the profitability of the Swedish mechanical hardwood industry.
